From the Publisher"A solid and stimulating collection of essays on one of the most important issues of our day."—Gordon Wood, Professor of History, Brown University
"Religion, State and Society: Jefferson's Wall of Separation in Comparative Perspective is a 'must read' at a time when the relationship of religion to state and society is a global issue in mainstream and radical politics. Robert Fatton Jr. and R. K. Ramazani's stellar list of scholars shed new light on the origins and development of the Jeffersonian doctrine of the separation between church and state and place it in comparative perspective with European and Middle Eastern experiences. "—John L. Esposito is University Professor of Religion & International Affairs at Georgetown University; his most recent book is Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think.
